Ontario teenager wins ANA scholarship

William Stone, the newest junior member of Ontario’s London Numismatic Society, has won a scholarship to the annual Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Stone earned the scholarship for the weeklong education-focused event – organized by the American Numismatic Association (ANA) – through the Eric P. Newman Young Numismatist Scholarship Program. His application, which was submitted to the ANA’s Florence Schook School of Numismatics, included an essay on the topic, “What about numismatics still excites you to this day?”

Stone, who has been interested in currency since age six and whose main collecting interest is Black Sea coinage, writes: “I feel I can label numismatics as my greatest passion. There is nothing about numismatics that is boring to me. Numismatics is constantly sparking my curiosity. I love the ability to learn new things on my own and there is always something new to learn.”

While this year’s Summer Seminar was cancelled due to COVID-19, Stone’s scholarship – which includes tuition, accommodations and travel – will be carried over to 2021.

More details about next year’s Summer Seminar will be announced in December.
